White Hart Lane is a London Overground station on the Lea Valley lines located in Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey in north London. It is 7 miles 11 chains (11.5 km) down the line from London Liverpool Street and is situated between Bruce Grove and Silver Street. It is in Travelcard zone 3.
The station is close to Bruce Castle, at which the annual Tottenham Carnival is held, usually in mid-June, and to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the new home ground of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club that replaced White Hart Lane.
As part of the Northumberland Development Project to redevelop the White Hart Lane stadium and regenerate the area, a plan to upgrade the station has been proposed, and the rebuilding is scheduled to start in autumn 2017 and finished in spring 2019. This involves the building of a new ticket hall on Love Lane to create a better connection with Tottenham High Road and an additional entrance on Penshurst Road. The football club is also interested in renaming the White Hart Lane station to Tottenham Hotspur.
